(Bluefield)—The annual Bluefield State College "Blue & Gold Extravaganza" on Friday, May 2, 2014 combines a night of spirited fun with a worthy cause to raise funds that will help BSC students. The event begins at 7 p.m. at Fincastle On The Mountain in Bluefield, VA. The evening will feature an attractive variety of live and silent auction items.

Auction proceeds will benefit the BSC Foundation's unrestricted fund which provides assistance in addressing opportunities and challenges for BSC students. This fund provides emergency loans for students, underwrites employees' participation in professional workshops, and addresses opportunities and challenges for BSC students throughout the year.

Betty Carroll, Executive Director of the BSC Foundation, has directed organizational efforts for the event. "The Extravaganza provides a great opportunity for Bluefield State College and the community to come together for the auction, enjoy some delicious food and raise funds to assist BSC students," she observed. This year's event features vacation certificates, gift baskets, artwork, restaurant vouchers, and more. Bill Archer will again serve as auctioneer.

Tickets purchased prior to the event cost $20 each (tickets at the door--$25), and entitle the holder to two beverages and hors d'oeuvres. Individuals and/or organizations interested in securing tickets are encouraged to contact Carroll (304-327-4031) or Lala Waters (304-327-4235). Tickets will also be available at the door.
